Hmm no "try to swim in a lava flow/ run without watching where you go"? Apparently I die even more dumbly than others.

I love the zombie in the lower left.

That was great, and I've probably died in most of those ways. And yeah, the zombie in the lower left was too funny.

I don't play Minecraft but recently set up a server for my teenaged son and his friends. After launching it, I had him join from his computer while I joined from my own to test that multiplayer was actually working. Upon entering the world I immediately started to sink in water when suddenly some humanoid thing appeared in front of me so I started hitting it but I drowned anyway because I couldn't figure out how to move out of the water. Then my son called out from the other room, "Hey, why did you punch me?"

So yeah, there's another dumb way to die in Minecraft.

I actually like this song *better*. I think it's the background singers.

Also, now I want to be able to draw like this.

run without watching where you go

That's a dozen dumb ways I've died in Minecraft right there.

Also, try to get out of a boat / minecart with no space over your head.

Leave your door ajar when you go to bed.

Shoot arrows at a skeleton with a lava pit at your back.

Between the new zombie horde behavior and the new skeleton mad archery skills in the 1.6 update, there's not much room for error, dumb or otherwise.

Endearing animation, but a nitpick: You cannot die from eating rotten flesh.

Accidentally punching a wolf instead of feeding it and being ripped to shreds by the pack. That's my favorite dumb way to die.

I do much prefer this more general video game version. Getting sacked by Johnny Cage is, indeed, an incredibly dumb way to die.

Shooting yourself to death with an arrow isn't shameful. I would consider it an accomplishment.

Imagining a NetHack version that's just a bunch of @s hopping back and forth.

That sucks because one of the best moments in the game is when you peek around a corner or through an opening into a dark place and an arrow suddenly goes "thwip...boing!" and imbeds itself in the wall next to your head.

It's not nearly so cinematic if the arrow actually hits you.
